New collaborative publication on the role of P2X7 receptors in experimental schizophrenia

Researchers from ACHUCARRO collaborate with Prof. Beata Sperlagh from the Institute of Experimental Medicine in Budapest.

Stefano Calovi, a predoctoral researcher of the laboratory of Prof. Beata Sperlagh at the Institute of Experimental Medicine in Budapest (Hungary) has been on a research visit to ACHUCARRO, where he spent time in the Laboratory of Neuronal Excitability led by Dr. Jan Tønnesen.

Stefano performed research in the framework on his PhD thesis, focusing on the involvement of purinergic P2X7 receptors in schizophrenia. The extensive experimental project spanned biochemical, electrophysiological and behavioral techniques, and involved researchers from Hungary, Spain and Germany.

The results are now published in this open-access research article in Frontiers in Molecular Neuroscience.

Congratulations Stefano, Beata, Jan and co-authors!
